Set the Grid header min-height to 32px by default

Set the Grid header min-height to 32px by default

1. What version of Thingworx are you currently running?
ThingWorx 9.3.2


2. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
In the Grid widget under "Style Properties -> Base -> Header", min-height is set by default to 48px. This adds extra white space in the header that is not lined up with the header devider in the grid.  This should be set to 32px by default.

3. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
Every time we add a new Grid we have to change the min-height. This is causing unnecessary frustration when developing in ThingWorx.

I'd like to say that they shouldn't be in the business of setting our minimum heights, widths, etc.  Their blanket decisions has caused us MUCH grief and extra expended manhours to "fix" something that wasn't broken before an upgrade.

 

PTC should, instead, try to make it easier for us to make our own blanket/project decisions.  A more plausible alternative would be to put these settings in the STYLE THEME, allowing developers to set their OWN minimums by each project.  We create a new style theme for each of our projects, and it would be a GREAT feature to put these settings there.  Then you can make "case-by-case" adjustments in the widget settings to override the theme settings.

 

This would be a MUCH better solution!

Thanks for your input @OldGoat! I agree with your statments. The theme is a good place for storing the "project" styling defualt settings.
